Kojak - The Lollypop Cop, MCA 1975, Irish linen by Ulster
Actually "love is too weak a word for what I feel" I "luff" it, "two F's"!
Alvy singer to Annie, Annie Hall, 1977. I'm paraphrasing.
(I've used this quote before, I know, but I'm not sorry because I luff it)
Do you luff it (the tea towel and the quote) too?
As most of you know, I've got a lot of vintage tea towels, but I think it's safe to say, none of them are as cool as this one.
Anthony found it in an op-shop this morning. It cost ten dollars - a fortune as far as my expenditure on vintage tea towels is concerned - but worth every cent IMO. Yours?
My parents wouldn't let me watch Kojak when it was on telly (October 1973 - March 1978)
they thought it was too violent, the stuff of childhood nightmares etc (they had five kids - they needed their sleep!)
so I was at a complete loss when I started High School and saw all (well it seemed like that to me) the girls in my year sucking on Chupa Chups at recess.
Sheltered and deprived.
Some of them (the rich ones) strutting around with two or three shoved in their mouths! Luuuucky!
I'm sure the "who loves ya baby?" line was trotted out too. So lame and quite sweet, especially when you compare it to the stuff kids get up to these days...whatever happened to elastics and Coca-Cola yo-yo's? But that's another post...
Hunting for the right place to hang this one. Kojak's far too special to get shoved in the third drawer. You concur, don't you?

Thanks for reading, love ya baby(ies) x
p.s. did you know the Chupa Chups logo was designed by Salvador Dali? In 1969? Well you do now!
